Capo 3

In a bar in Toledo Across from the depot,
On a bar stool she took off her ring.
    D                                D7
I thought I'd get closer, So I walked on over,
  D                  D7               G     
I sat down and asked her name.
When the drinks finally hit her, She said I'm no quitter,
                        G7            C     
But I finally quit livin on dreams.
I'm hungry for laughter And here ever after
       D                                         G
I’m after whatever the other life brings.

In the mirror I saw him And I closely watched him
I thought how he looked out of place.
      D                                   D7
He came to the woman Who sat there beside me,
     D                   D7               G
He had a strange look on his face.
Now his big hands were calloused, He looked like a mountain,
                         G7                 C
For a minute I thought I was dead,
       D                                 D
But he started shaking, His big heart was breaking
And he turned to the woman and said :

You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille
With four hungry children and crops in the field.
I've had some bad times, lived through some sad times,
But this time your hurting won't heal,
                      D                 D7               G     - A
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.

After he left us I ordered more whisky,
I thought how she'd made him look small,
             E7                                       E               
From the lights of the bar room To a rented hotel room
     E7                    E            A     
We walked without talking at all.

Now she was a beauty, But when she came to me,
                                     A7               D    
She must have thought I'd lost my mind.
           E                                            E7               
‘Cause I couldn’t hold her, The words that he told her,
          E                E7             A
Kept coming back time after time

You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille,
With four hungry children and crops in the field.
I've had some bad times lived through some sad times,
But this time the hurting won't heal,
                      E                 E7               A    
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.

+ repeat CHORUS
